Crew (Alpha order): 42308 F/L (Pilot) Robert William HARDCASTLE RAF + 362686 F/Sgt ( - ? - ) Leonard James REASON* RAF + 45256 F/L (Pilot) George Frederick ROBERTS* RAFVR + 136043 F/O (Pilot) Edward John SMITH RAFVR + AUS406605 F/O (Nav.) Arthur Milford TINDALE RAAF + 541901 LAC ( - ? - ) Ronald Joseph WALTER RAF + * Reason and Roberts, were "Old Haltonians". This incident is not covered by Alan Storr.
